Isango Ensemble "The Magic Flute"

Mozart’s best-loved opera is transposed to South Africa—and marimba.

7:30pm – 9:30pm
Hopkins Center 123 Spaulding Auditorium
Intended Audience(s): Public

Fee required. Tickets required.

Isango, internationally known for transporting European classics into a South African setting, fuses the opera’s original story with a Tsonga folktale also involving a magic flute. The two dozen performers—mostly local to Cape Town—dance, play rollicking melodies, and trill Mozart’s arias in this acclaimed rendering of Impempe Yomlingo (“magic flute” in the South African language of Xhosa).
